Need a new challenge? Looking to make some new friends? Feeling inspired to get to know Shakespeare a bit more? Our adult classes are the perfect way to introduce, or rediscover, the inspiring world of The Bard. Together we'll explore why his remarkable plays are still being performed 400 years on.
THE BARD'S NOT THAT HARD
"A very BIG THANK YOU for making this term’s sessions SO interesting and inspirational." Class Member, 2022
Delivered by theatre professionals, with regular visits from our main-house production’s creatives and actors, GSC’s practical evening classes are designed to help you discover The Bard in a fun and supportive environment.
We explore Shakespeare’s great plays through close reading, group discussion and practical exercises in our professional rehearsal room. Each term culminates in a celebration of the term’s discoveries with wine and friends.
“We look at Shakespeare’s choice of words, their sound, their order on the page and the visual images created – this helps create a deeper understanding of the work and also gives you an insight and appreciation into Shakespeare’s skill as a writer.” Class Member
The Bard's Not That Hard meet on a Tuesday evening, 7pm - 9pm, in the rehearsal room at GSC HQ. No experience of Shakespeare or acting necessary and all ages welcome. This is not an acting class but there will be tea and biscuits! Just bring yourself and a desire to learn.
“I am able to appreciate and enjoy productions of Shakespeare better.” Class Member
